Florida Gators get good news on injury front

Florida’s season took a shocking twist with the news of quarterback Will Grier’s suspension for performance-enhancing drugs, but the No. 8 Gators are at least rather healthy before their bayou bash with No. 6 LSU on Saturday (7 p.m., ESPN).

Tight end C’yontai Lewis (hand) is probable after missing the past four games. The redshirt freshman caught two touchdowns in Florida’s opener but was injured in practice before the Kentucky game.

“We’re going to look at him [Tuesday],” UF coach Jim McElwain said. “I feel pretty good about him being able to come back, which really helps us in our green and other packages. Excited about that.”

Meanwhile, junior tailback Kelvin Taylor is recovering from an ankle injury but is also “good to go.”

Defensive tackle Joey Ivie is questionable with an abductor strain, but freshman wideout Antonio Callaway (leg), senior linebacker Antonio Morrison (cramps) and defensive tackle Caleb Brantley (undisclosed) are all fine after sustaining bumps and bruises in UF’s 21-3 win Saturday at Missouri.
